Suspected Medibank hacker releases sample of customer data

One thing that interests me is how long do health funds and phone companies hold on to old data? Is it five years, ten years or twenty years? We are not usually told this and I feel the public have a right to know this. Also when joining a fund or telephone service provider it should be clearly stated in large text how long personal data is stored. Clearly corporations can’t be trusted with sensitive information and this is a breach of trust. People will no longer have any trust in dealing with financial institutions, health funds,    telecommunications services or the government.
